Almost a year passed since spColumn v5.00 was released. Now we are happy to inform that a new version of this civil engineering software we’ve co-developed is out. It is spColumn 5.5.
In this version, we’ve completely rewritten the module named spSection. It is a module that lets the engineer model the irregular shape columns. We’ve developed tooling for modelling columns and reinforcement. Tools include features like creating rectangles, circles, polygons, joining shapes or modyfing nodes. Also there are transformation features like rotation, translation and reflection. We’ve added tooling for entering coordinates from keyboard, validating the model and importing/exporting the model from/to dxf (a de facto standard among civil engineers).
spColumn v5.50 can be tested for free in a Trail version. This version is downloadable from the Structurepoint website. Give it a try!
